8:03 am
estimated by the budget office which is an independent bipartisan referee in congress that determines these things, they figure that seniors would end up paying twice as much for the health-care as they're currently. at least twice as much. more importantly, it would get worse over time. health-care inflation goes up a lot faster than regular inflation. your health care costs keep going up, up, the venture doesn't. each year, more, more cost of a pocket. i think that is the wrong way to go. that would change medicare as we know it. and i'm not going to set (no audio) for that. (cheering & applause) having said that, we're
8:04 am
going to have to reform medicare, and their entire health-care system in order to improve quality for the amount of money we spend because we spend much more money in this country on health care than any other industrialized country and their outcomes and not better. that is what we started doing with health care reform last year. police said was let's not just of these additional costs on seniors, it is not hard to save the government money if you're saying here, you pay for it. that's not a solution the question is how we actually make health care costs lower overall? that means that we work with providers, to say how can you do a better job of providing care to the chronically ill? 15-20 percent of the patients account for 80 percent of the costs. because they have
8:05 am
chronic illnesses can read and semis providers to do a better job? monitoring those illnesses, preventing them. treating those illnesses in a comprehensive way, so the overall costs go down? can we stop with the five-six tests? all of which the cost money and just give you one test and have the results e- mail it to everyone you need to deal with. that can save us money. their whole host of steps that we can take that could make a big difference and reducing costs overall. keep the mind even if an automatic fare. >> justine: here listening to president obama speaking to a group of college students at virginia community college he was discussing his vision for bringing down the deficit and talking about medicare and medicaid. president
